Track Name: Queen Of Misery
Everywhere she goes
The brokenhearted follow her around
They grab they push they pull they kiss the ground
She walks upon

Hoping for a glimpse or a touch to ease their suffering
She is the queen
The queen of misery

It started long ago
Although she is not very old
She has the look of someone who is wise
Beyond their years

Tragedy just followed her around until she found
She was the queen
The queen of misery

The queen of misery
The queen of misery

There's a story someone told
Of how she helped a desperate soul
Who'd lost heart regain faith and trust in love
And lose their fear

But when the pain and sorrow disappeared so did she
She is the queen
The queen of misery

And all the lonely people in this world agree
She is the queen
The queen of misery

The queen of misery
The queen of misery

She was standing in the shadowed
Corner of Old I
The music blasting dancers flying no one noticed
Her at all

I said is something wrong she laughed and smiled at me
She said no
I'm the queen of misery

She said No no no no no no no
I'm the queen of misery

The queen of misery
The queen of misery
Track Name: You Don't Know Me
You walk into this crowded room
You're looking like somebody who
Like true love might be waiting

But everybody's in despair
In need of some minor repair
Just listen to what you're saying

Don't start shouting words of love
Don't say I'm the one you're dreaming of
You just might be mistaken

You don't know me
You don't know me

You don't even think about the time
You lost your love you lost your mind
But maybe you should remember

We travel through this world alone
With broken hearts on hearts of stone
In boots of Spanish leather

So please don't look at me that way
I'm not about to save the day
I'm not gonna be your love

You don't know me
You don't know me

You don't know me
You don't know me

Now I'm not talking right or wrong
But I'm nobody's Avalon

You don't want to know this loneliness
This emptiness this bitterness
Why you messing with me

But you come around and you come around
You try to knock my whole world down
And maybe it should be

But violet satin crimson lace
Or this whole damn world thrown in my face
It's not gonna impress me

You don't know me
You don't know me
You don't know me
Track Name: Heather Robinson
Heather Robinson
Just back from New York State
In a shaky state of mind

She had a hard time there
Trouble every where
The blade lay by her bed

But Jonah saved her then
They talked all night she said
She'd get on the next plane
Heather Robinson

So Heather flew from there
To Colorado where
Her friend Karen took her in

She called me once to say
That she would be okay
I had my doubts I held my breath

Heather Robinson
What are you running from
Heather run to me
Heather Robinson

Well I first meet Heather here
The Cafe Paris years
She was married to my friend

And they were very cool
But they had problems too
Separation and love dies

It was so very hard
They both had broken hearts
Desperation moved in
Heather Robinson

It got real crazy then
No one could understand
The demons chasing Heather down

And I thought it started here
But I was wrong I fear
And my suspicions leave me cold

Heather Robinson
What are you running from
Heather run to me
Heather Robinson

She had a few affairs
No need to mention here
Autumn turned to winter freeze

She lived with Zara who
Introduced her to
Eric it was New Years Eve

But she was troubled still
No way to break the chill
Of a heart in pain
Heather Robinson

Well Hannah was the next
And just like you'd expect
You could see the sparks explode

Then Heather met someone
He said he'd take her from
Our town away to New York State

Heather Robinson
What are you running from
Heather run to me
Heather Robinson

Now I know this isn't fair
To bare her soul right here
I should probably keep it to myself

But her whole family
Abused her verbally
And my heart screams out for revenge

Oh yes I know it's wrong
But I can't play along
'Cause I've got problems of my own
Heather Robinson

Heather Robinson
What are you running from
Heather run to me
Heather Robinson
Track Name: My Own Personal Goddess
I've got my own personal Goddess
I know it's hard to believe
She's here to help me end my broken dreams

She said we've all got our problems
And mine was letting go
Fear and pain had paralyzed my soul

So I bow down before her
I kneel down before her
I lie down before her
She is love

I've got my own personal Goddess
And her love lights the way
For me to follow through my darkest day

You say it sounds kind of crazy
Well I don't disagree
But she has been a saving grace for me

So I bow down before her
I kneel down before her
I lie down before her
She is love

Goddess of love and understanding
Help me to find a happy ending

I've got my own personal Goddess
Walking flesh and blood
And everyday she fills my heart with love

I know I don't have to tell you
What she means to me
She is full of magic and mystery

So I bow down before her
I kneel down before her
I lie down before her
She is love

I've got my own personal Goddess
Watching over me
Watching over me
Watching over me
Track Name: Strange Bird
Such a strange bird I've discovered
Unexpected unencumbered
She is dancing in the moonlight
Like it was God's own spot light

Such a strange bird
Such a strange bird

At the counter she is talking
Mystical unfolding
In the heavens in the night sky
The stars swim in her eyes

Such a strange bird
Such a strange bird

Strange bird
Strange bird

As she glides through the crowd I watch her
Fragmented glimpses of her
And like a drummer my heart is pounding
To a beat that's never ending

Such a strange bird
Such a strange bird

She turns the corner now I've lost her
So I get up to follow after
And in the shadows she is waiting
Laughing at my transcending

Such a strange bird
Such a strange bird

Strange bird
Strange bird

Of feathers I am dreaming
All around me gently falling
On a bed of silk and leather
Such a strange bird I've discovered

Such a strange bird
Such a strange bird
Such a strange bird
Such a strange bird
Track Name: Brian Jones
I remember Brian Jones
He started a band called The Rolling Stones
They were really happening
Took the world by storm made the young girls scream

Things fell apart as their fame grew
Until they found him face down in his pool

Do you remember Brian Jones
Do you remember Brian Jones
Do you remember Brian Jones

I can't remember my first love
As hard as I pray to the stars above
We were young and in a band
But the rest is gone with the shifting sand

Some traumatic incident
Has blocked my mind from the thought of it

Do you remember Brian Jones
Do you remember Brian Jones
Do you remember Brian Jones

You think I'm making all this up
My world is floating in a paper cup
If I were you I'd take a look
At everything I thought was true

Do you remember Brian Jones
Do you remember Brian Jones
Do you remember Brian Jones

The papers called a accident
Too much to drink and drugs mixed with it
But others thought it was suicide
They bowed their heads while the young girls cried

Or was it murder and were friends involved
Another cover up that goes unsolved

Do you remember Brian Jones
Do you remember Brian Jones
Do you remember Brian
Do you remember Brian
Do you remember Brian Jones
Track Name: Love Let Me Be
I am on a ledge
Balanced on a wire
This must be the point of no return

I don't want to hear
I don't want to know
I don't want to talk about it now

Love let me be
Love let me be

In the cold gray dawn
I lie here undone
Broken by the weight of letting go

I don't move
I don't want to dream
I don't want to feel you next to me

Love let me be
Love let me be

So bring down the moon
Daughters dark and grim
You can spare me this final appetite

I don't want to think
I don't want to see
I don't want to face my demon's need

Love let me be
Love let me be

Love let me be
Track Name: She Counts The Stars
She goes home alone at night
She has the feeling that something's just not right
She goes home alone

She makes a cup of tea then reads
She'll feed the cat then watch TV
Trying hard to be strong

But I wonder how much more she can take
How much love can we lose before we break
Tell me it's all in my head

She goes home alone at night
She tells the world she'll be all right
She counts the stars until it's light
She counts the starts at night

There's a clock up on her wall
You can hear it tick but there's no hands at all
I know it's odd but it's cool

And If someone told me this I'd think that it's strange
I might even laugh to escape the pain
Hiding the truth from myself

When I asked her what she did on nights
When storm clouds hid the stars from sight
She said she counts each drop of rain

She goes home alone at night
She tells us that she'll be all right
She counts the stars until it's light
She counts the starts at night

She said this can world be so hard to face
She said this world can be to much to take
She said this world can be a lonely place

But when she said she thought she was a lot like me
I dropped my cup I spilled her tea
So surprised I couldn't speak

Well she shrugged it off and then shied away
I couldn't see it then but I can see it today
Just one tear frozen in time

She goes home alone at night
She tells me that she'll be all right
She counts the stars until it's light

She goes home alone at night
She tells us that she'll be all right
She counts the stars until it's light
She counts the starts at night
She counts the starts at night
Track Name: Drum And Drummer
I saw you standing in the very first row
You waved me over and then during the show

You said your band needed a drummer
So I started pounding on your shoulders

I'll be your drummer if you'll be my drum
I'll be your drummer if you'll be my drum
I'll be your drummer if you'll be my drum
I'll be your drummer if you'll be my drum

You said your heart sank 'cause there wasn't a band
I reached out to you and while holding your hand

I said it's really not a problem
Between you and me we don't need you

I'll be your drummer if you'll be my drum
I'll be your drummer if you'll be my drum
I'll be your drummer if you'll be my drum
I'll be your drummer if you'll be my drum

You said it's sounding kind of strange
And if I would could I explain

Well all this talk of drummers drumming
Just means my heart is overflowing

I'll be your drummer if you'll be my drum
I'll be your drummer if you'll be my drum
I'll be your drummer if you'll be my drum
I'll be your drummer if you'll be my drum

Then you got this funny kind of look in your eyes
I thought I'd blown it man but I was surprised

'Cause you said it's like that Beatle song
Then shook your head and played along

I'll be your drummer if you'll be my drum
I'll be your drummer if you'll be my drum
I'll be your drummer if you'll be my drum
I'll be your drummer if you'll be my

I'll be your drummer if you'll be my drum
I'll be your drummer if you'll be my drum
I'll be your drummer if you'll be my drum
I'll be your drummer if you'll be my drum
Track Name: Lonely Girl
She's a lonely girl
A product of a broken home
Now she lives alone

She's a lonely girl
But happiness has found her
Built a wall around her where no one can go

Oh and don't you love the way she smiles
Don't you love the sparkle in her eyes
When she smiles
When she smiles

She's a lonely girl
Living in a world of pain
Yet no one's to blame

She's a lonely girl
Hiding in sorrow
There's no tomorrow there's only today

Oh and don't you love the way she smiles
Don't you love the sparkle in her eyes
When she smiles
When she smiles

Oh she's such a lonely girl
So serious and yet
It feels like heaven is in her eyes
And it won't let me forget

She's a lonely girl
But laughter hasn't passed her by
It's just hard to find

She's a lonely girl
So hard to measure
It's now or never or get left behind

Oh and don't you love the way she smiles
Don't you love the sparkle in her eyes
When she smiles
When she smiles
When she smiles
When she smiles
Track Name: Break Your Heart
I sit here in the dark
In this cold empty room
I can still see your face
I can still
I can still hear you saying

I don't wanna break your heart
I don't wanna break your heart
I don't wanna break your heart
But I'm leavin' you

And you said there's a light
At the end of this road
But I don't see no light
All I see
Is you leavin' and saying

I don't wanna break your heart
I don't wanna break your heart
I don't wanna break your heart
But I'm leavin' you

You say
Isn't love a crazy dance
Isn't like a game of chance
You say
What is love supposed to be
You know I just can't think
When you keep saying to me

I don't wanna break your heart
I don't wanna break your heart
I don't wanna break your heart

In this cold empty room
Shadows rip at my heart
Voices scream in my head
And through my tears
I hear you whispering to me

I don't wanna break your heart
I don't wanna break your heart
I don't wanna break your heart

I don't wanna break your heart
I don't wanna break your heart
I don't wanna break your heart
But I'm leavin' you
